Provisioning Cisco Collaboration gets even easier with phone swap tool
The mobile app from Akkadian Provisioning Manager is just one way the Cisco UC provisioning tool is helps UC admins save time. Released alongside phone swap, are the self-provisioning and license pools features.
What is CUCM Phone Swap
What is CUCM phone swap? Phone Swap app provides the ability to swap or copy configurations between almost any Cisco IP phone. For example, the Cisco IP 7900 series has reached end-of-life. Many organizations are replacing these phones with a newer model. Without Akkadian Provisioning Manager, this can be a tedious task of manually provisioning the new phone, re-associating the line to the device, and then the device to the user. But, Akkadian clients have an easier, smarter way. Akkadian Phone Swap allows you to simply select the source phone, enter a few details about the destination phone and you are done.
The next time-saving feature we’re happy to announce is self-provisioning. When your company has a new employee starting, simply provision the user using a dummy mac address. When the new employee first arrives at his new desk, he can complete the provisioning process by entering his self-service ID on the phone and Akkadian Provisioning Manager will handle the rest.
License pool manager
Our third new benefit saves time and money by helping to more effectively manage licensing in Cisco Communications Manager. Akkadian Provisioning Manager already does a great job of associating end users to phones, but what about situation where phones are not associated to users? These could be common area phones or phones in retail or manufacturing locations. License pool manager help organizations by:
- Automatically creating local licensr users in CUCM
- Automatically assigning phones to these license users
- Managing the ongoing process as phoned are deleted and added to the CUCM end user template being used
